Slip and fall accidents
Sometimes when we injure ourselves as a result of a slip or a fall, it’s our own carelessness. Accidents happen. Other times when we hurt ourselves in a fall, it’s caused by the mistake, negligence or carelessness of others. An establishment (place of business, store, someone else’s residence, etc.) have carelessly created dangerous conditions which resulted in your injury. They failed to ‘do it right’ to protect those visiting their property in any number of ways including;
- Faulty handrails
- Torn or frayed carpet
- Uneven surfaces
- Improperly maintained sidewalks or parking lots
Whenever a slip and fall accident happens, especially when at a commercially-owned place of business, the insurance companies and their lawyers are going to do everything they can to convince the court the accident was your fault alone. This is why in slip and fall cases it’s especially critical to have an attorney who will check, double check or even triple check every fact, photo, piece of testimony and detail of the case. At Brian Caubarreaux & Associates, this level of diligence is the rule, not the exception. Slip and fall injuries can be severe, leaving victims with serious spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries that may lower the quality of their lives forever.
We’ll come to your home or to your hospital bed; you can come to our office or meet wherever you like. Whatever the venue, always consult with an attorney before making a commitment. Make sure you ask them what experience they have, if any, in slip and fall related cases. Also ask if the attorney feels you have a case, and make sure they give you the reasons for their answer. A reputable attorney should be honored by your interest in them and be willing to provide the initial consultation at no charge. We certainly do.
At Brian Caubarreaux & Associates we get to work immediately on investigating your case and preserving evidence while it is still fresh. We check and re-check all the facts, evidence, reports and other information for accuracy. We make sure every “t” is crossed and “i” is dotted.
